This is more a proof of concept for a way of working. I'm trying to build a live type of modular along the lines of Stevio. Smaller ofc.. and I don't have his chops... I love his grooves and the way he can play for long time with changes.
Technically I was using just a A-182-1 cut in 2 giving 2x 4 multi switch... since this I have added another and a A-182-2 quad switch.. also now have 2 precision adders and a new sequencer "tesseract.. step fader" which were not used in this patch... I got a new patch going...
but not happy with any recordings yet, working on it :wink:

Any way... hope you enjoy.

I don't have a crazy sampler module like you do...
However I did do something with disting and a very old loop I made about 20 years ago... stretched it about a bit...got some really interesting textures ...
BUT I like my grooves and rhythms... I need to keep my old heart beating... just gotta keep finding newish grooves for aged hooves ..
maybe I should post it.. ;)

oh and thanx for the listen

This is cool - kind of funky almost. Found myself finger drumming while I was listening, which is always a good sign...

Phew... that's cool... thankfully it wasn't finger tapping...
that bored finger tapping... waiting waiting for the end.

Yeah.. I am trying (as my ex-wife would say "very trying") to get a kinda jazzy/funky... toonertricky thing.
The journey is fun ...


Thanks for your time out to listen . :hug:

It's all good, probably be buying another module or two during the black friday sales fest.
Other than that still cruising at 362 hp. :)

Mixer, hmm I don't have a mixer other than whats in the rack. I don't really want
one tbh, I like to mix in the rack and record directly into my field recorder.
Though, I am lazy to record stuff lately...

I think we started getting into modular about the same time... and have gone in quiet different directions... the beauty of modular... one can build the synth/instrument as desired..
Cool looking modular peky.

As to the mixer I was referring to this photo... but I guess it's not yours...

I am a mixer slut... used to work for Trident wiring A and B range... owned a couple of MIDAS mixers with some beautiful custom parametric EQ (not MIDAS... made by a real gem electronics guy) and been fortunate to work on/with some top mixers.. Neve, Trident... Amek and a little known but well respected Raindirk mixer etc... :D

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7760&start=4695

I've been a bit lazy as well, regarding recording.. but started again recently.
